Global warming is a good thing, I’ve been playing softball here in S.E. Michigan since early March and even played a few times in both January and Feb........

I kind of miss the widespread snow-cover in winter, in these recent decades, but there’s nothing we can do about it.

Global warming is a good thing

Can't be emphasized enough. We spend roughly twice as much on heat as on A/C in this country and a lot of the A/C is wasted in inefficient office buildings. The use of A/C is somewhat optional in Virginia where I live, but heat is not for 3 months out of the year and necessary for 2 more months just to be able to function on cold days.

It is worth mentioning that the early warmth in March followed by typical cold frosts has caused some problems for some farmers. But that warmth came from a natural pattern, global warming can only add a degree or two on top of it and the typical temperatures in April show that global warming is not a major factor.
